With mojo for miles, this is the sound you have heard on countless records.
Why We Love This
This 1971 Precision Bass looks like the poster child for a Fender Custom Shop relic model, but alas, it is the real deal— the faded three-tone sunburst showing the kind of authentic, real-world wear that speaks to a half-century of being played and loved.
This is the sound we all have in our heads, heard on so, so many classic recordings, the sound we still hear played and performed live every day.
The neck plays great. It has a full, C-shape, running 7/8" deep at the first fret, tapering slightly to 1" at the 12th fret, and capped with a rosewood round laminated fingerboard (as opposed to slab board). Frets have been polished, showing no wear.
Original pickup and bridge cover w/ foam mute. Neck date stamped to October of '71, with the pot codes indicating springtime of the same year.
Very good overall condition, ready for the next 50+ years of music making.
